Milos is well known for its remarkable natural beauty. There are around sixty beaches to choose from, where the water ranges from emerald green to turquoise to azure, and the sand can be white, gold, red or even black. Factor in the famously unforgettable sunsets and it’s easy to see why Milos is known as ‘the island of colours’. And if your senses are still not sated with this orgy of colour, a boat trip around the coast reveals the incredible layers in the cliff faces, and the other-worldly shapes of the tiny bays and unique rock formations created by Milos’s volcanic history and carved out by the sea. There is even the much photographed Sarakiniko ‘moonscape’, where the rocks and sand are brilliant white. Boat trips around the island leave from Adamas, and they are an absolute must. Even if geology isn't your thing, you can’t fail to be blown away by the views, and there are some beautiful swimming spots and beaches which aren't accessible by road, which are well worth a visit too. Back on dry land, visitors to Milos always mention the warmth and friendliness of the locals as being one of the stand-out memories of their stay. The main port of Adamas is a lively town with some good night life and plenty of cafes and tavernas. Plaka, the charming capital, is high up on a hill and is the best place from which to see Milos’s glorious sunsets. It has been described as ‘the most romantic place on earth’ by many a couple, who enjoy staying in the apartments with spectacular sea views. Some other places to visit are pretty Pollonia on the northeast tip of the island, which has tree-lined family friendly beaches, and Klima, which is a picturesque little fishing village, with quaint houses built into the rocks. You will love Milos and start making plans to go back as soon as you leave.
